Newton, still without a team, won't be heading to Duval. Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

The Jaguars are “pretty much done” with their quarterback search, head coach Doug Marrone told Adam Schein of SiriusXM. Marrone didn’t specifically address questions about Cam Newton, but it sounds like the Jaguars won’t be in the mix for the former MVP. 

The Jaguars signed Mike Glennon earlier this month, giving them three quarterbacks behind presumptive starter Gardner Minshew. They’ve also got Joshua Dobbs  Ben Roethlisberger‘s one-time backup — and sixth-round rookie Jake Luton on hand. That leaves little room for Newton, despite all of his career accomplishments.

Early on in his free agency, Newton was set on being a starter. Now, he’s eased his expectations. Newton is reportedly willing to sign on as someone’s backup QB, though he might not be willing to completely slash his asking price. Earlier this spring, former No. 1 overall pick Jameis Winston signed with the Saints on a one-year deal with a paltry base salary of $1.1M. We have a hard time imagining Newton — who has made more than $100M over the years — doing the same.

With four QBs on hand, the Jaguars are content with what they have. That means they won’t be in the mix for Newton or Joe Flacco. And, it probably goes without saying, but they won’t make a play for old friend Blake Bortles either.
